Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------CLUNY BROWN by Margery Sharp. This is the story of Cluny Brown, who has personality and aspirations different from those who wish to shape her to fit another mold. Cluny Brown is a young working class woman in 1938 London who is becoming a trial to her plumber uncle, Arn (he and his late wife raised her when she was orphaned as a baby). Cluny, described as tall and plain, but with creamy skin and beautiful dark eyes, is beginning to attract too much attention from men---to Uncle Arn's surprise and dismay, because he (and the rest of the family) considers her extremely unattractive. She's sent into service, in the Devon countryside, at Carmel Friars, a lovely country manor. There she meets an assortment of characters, including a priggish chemist (drugstore owner) who fancies her, a Polish emigre writer, who doesn't seem to fancy her at all, the son and heir, who's involved with a blonde English beauty, an enthusiastic double-barreled young woman, Miss Duff-Gordon, who raises rabbits, and on and on. Cluny chafes at the lack of freedom and becomes part of everyone's life, popping up at key moments to comment on the action and providing a good deal of it herself. A charming look at England before WWII. THIS IS THE BASIS FOR THE HIT MOVIE STARRING CHARLES BOYER AND JENNIFER JONES!! You are bidding on the only stated Little Edition from 1944.
